I have been feeding Lilly, my 5 month old kitten about a cup of Merrick's Chicken Recipe dry food for awhile now, I want to transition to combination feeding both wet and dry. I got the LID merrick wet food and I just need to know how much of eat I will need to feed her. Thanks!

Since Lilly is still growing, I believe you are supposed to offer as much food as she will eat 3-4 times a day.

It's awesome that you're introducing wet food into her diet!

She just ate more than half of a 5 oz can, safe to say she likes it! :-)

As much as she wants. A 5 month old kitten is growing like crazy and should be fed as much as she wants to eat.

I just lay out dry food at all times and feed my kitten about 1/4 of a can for her meals one in the morning and one at night because I also buy expensive food and can't afford to give her a can a day but since she free feeds dry food she can eat as much as she wants and also eating wet food is always good!

Thank you! She gets dry all day and wet food twice a day, she usually eats half of a 5 oz can at each feeding. Is that enough?
